I viewed and photographed the exact same saber at Comic-Con 2008 and thought it looked great. We have different opinions and don't agree at all, which is fine. I would buy the Obi-reveal whether you liked it or not, I'm fairly sure others would also.I seen that obi-saber at comic-con 2008. My opinion was it looked like a peice plastic. Bryan asked me what I thought and I said you want the truth or a lie. I have 7 Obi-won saber why would I want that one. It's not a movie prop it's EFX's over priced toy version. As for Bryan when it's time to charge more money for a pre-order, We will hear from him.
I also gather from your comments that you don't like the idea of reveal lightsabers, none of them will be true prop replicas because no one saw any of these sabers on screen with their innards revealed. Even the Luke ROTJ cut scene is just that; a cut scene that was never shown on the screen as part of the movie. The exterior of these sabers can for all intents and purposes be considered prop replicas because the exterior is a known item.
Why do you feel the need to personally insult Bryan with the last part of your post? What has he done to you to warrant that kind of comment? Lack of civility and rudeness are not good traits to sport in life. I wouldn't want to contribute to this forum either if all I could expect were unwarranted assaults on my character.
